If transforming into authenticity is a journey, a map for the envisioned destination would be highly useful. However, for numerous reasons it is unlikely that we will be able to travel with such a map: Many times we might be so divorced from our own selves that we can`t even picture the place where we want to go. More importantly, our destination (or destiny) is unfolding, is evolving as/while we are moving. When we start our journey, there is not yet a clear destination because the journey into our authentic self consists of CREATING this destination. Our destination is the new frontier and thus by definition unmapped territory. This is both scary and exciting.
When I write about authenticity, I mean Personal Authenticity. To me, this means being in alignment with myself and expressing the truth of who (or rather what) I really am. However, since authenticity is so personal, the definition of this concept might be unique for each and everyone. In fact, finding one`s own definition of what authentic even means could very well be the first step towards living a more authentic life.
Happy New Year!
Masses are not headed for Times Square, bundled to protect themselves from freezing temperatures, in order to watch a ball to drop.
No parties are planned with ample supply of bubbly champagne to toast at the midnight hour.
Instead, in the Metro Detroit area, it’s a mild, partly sunny day in the mid-70’s, with a chance of rain over the weekend. It’s the last weekend in August – Labor Day weekend to be precise.
Mike, you’ve certainly flipped your lid. Either that or your compulsive behavior of being early to everything has kicked into overdrive. It’s four months until December 31st.
